The state has noticed at many small restaurants and stores, that the plastic bag ban is not being followed. We thought a reminder about the law would be in order to assist businesses with complying before they are visited by their local department of health doing an inspection or there is a complaint lodged with the local department of health, which they must follow up on.
Here is the link to the NJDEP Get Past Plastic site which provides all of the details of the law, just in case.
